Skelekinz Devil

It's the weekend before Halloween and we're busy decorating the house and having themed parties with our friends.  The kids have really gotten into it this year and so it's made it all that much more fun to create these Halloween cards!  :D  This one uses Skelekinz Devil rubber stamps from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.

I reached into the back of the cabinet for some Halloween papers and spooky eyes to help embellish this card.  Then A few things from around the table such as the ribbon, staples and Hello sentiment... and some spiders from my favorite tiny punches.  Added some doodles and this little devil is ready so greet you in your mailbox!  Thanks for dropping by and have a wonderful spooky weekend!

Skelekinz Haunted House

I had some fun experimenting tonight and was actually able to color AND make a card!  I wasn't sure how I was going to get through it but it all comes back when ya need it.  :)  The image I used was Skelekinz Haunted House rubber stamp from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.

I started with the tree stencil in the background and really wanted to do something with that.  I used a sponge ink pad to apply the gray, heavily at the top then fading to nothing at the bottom.  I then stamped the Haunted House (which might have been easier to stamp first and mask it.  LOL)  Luckily the colors and position of the house worked out.  Then I applied some doodles around the edge which I'm picking up from Faye at the moment.  :)  After that, everything else was hit and miss embellishments.

Behind the layered cardstock is cheesecloth with some spiders that I punched out of black paper.  I used puff paint to give them orange eyes.  The stars are brads that I stuck randomly around the top and then I added Baker's twine at the bottom to ground it all.  Finally the pumpkin charm that has been waiting around for the year was finally selected and I added orange micro-beads in the holes for some color.  Tadah!
